Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Albertina / Leontine Bracelet Watch Chain Circa 1890

Collections: Sold Archive

Albertinas or Leontine as they were also know, were designed to hold a ladies pocket watch on one end and attached to an outfit via the T bar, however this one no longer has a T- bar but retains its lovely tassel.

This one is a fine example featuring an ornate tassel (one tiny ball end missing) and two ornate double sided sliders. Dog clip is nice, tight and springy and  (faded) hallmarked.
